Here is a little about the SGA President and Vice President
Justin Marchant is from Oregon, Wisconsin. He will be serving his second term as the Student Government Association President during the 2010-2011 academic year. Justin graduated from Oregon High School in June of 2008. He chose to come to Upper Iowa University for the small class sizes, great atmosphere and the opportunity to be a student athlete. Balancing academics with the demands of being an athlete can be very stressful, but with the eight week terms and the ability to take two classes at a time helps a great deal. Justin enjoys working out, playing just about every sport, and spending time with his family and friends. He also enjoys giving back to the community and those who are in need by volunteering with Habitat for Humanity, doing roadside clean-ups, working at nursing homes, or participating in Alternative Spring Break trips. Boston is Justin’s favorite place that he has ever been in his life.
Anthony DiJohn is the Student Government Association Vice President for the 2010-2011 academic year. Anthony is from Aurora, Illinois. He graduated from Waubonsie Valley High School in May of 2008. Now, as a junior at Upper Iowa, Anthony is majoring in Accounting, Financial Management, and Management. He plays on the UIU Men’s Soccer team and is currently the Vice President of Alpha Nu Omega. In his free time, he enjoys working out, listening to music, playing video games, and at the end of the day, just spending some quality time with his family and friends. Anthony’s favorite place he has ever visited is Cancun, Mexico. One thing very few people know about him is that he is deathly afraid of heights, but ironically enough, the job Anthony worked all summer required him to climb up on roofs and clean gutters. Thus, in hope of finding a better job someday, Anthony chose UIU because it offers an excellent balance between academics and athletics. With such a busy lifestyle as a student-athlete, the two-at-a-time course schedule makes it a lot easier for students to get all of their work done on time. Moreover, the low student-to-teacher ratio provides students with the opportunity to seek more personalized assistance if they start to fall behind in a class. What Anthony really like best about UIU, though, is that you are not just viewed as a number to professors; ultimately, this allows for a much more comfortable learning environment, and makes for a great overall college experience.
Thanks you! We look forward to hearing from you and we will do our best to implement your ideas around campus.
Justin and Anthony
